Hey, this is my friend Agent 0311's Volvo station wagon. Restored from a derelict field car over the last three years, off and on. A really fun car to drive, and should last a lifetime, unlike today's shit cars. These are rugged, honest cars with lots of charm and a great roar from the un-silenced twin SU carbs. High quality Bosch electrics and ZF steering box components are part of the reason these cars were so tough; most of the front end parts were still in perfect condition and were not replaced. This early Amazon still runs drum brakes all around, and charging is handled by generator. No upgrades were done to the car. The tires were sourced to match the original spare, still in the back. Hope you enjoyed looking at and listening to this great old car!

1967 Volvo 122S for Sale (Drive By and Test Drive)
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1967-volvo-122/ to see this fun sporty
1967 Volvo 122S for sale from Sunset Classics in Minneapolis Minnesota.
The previous owner was a real racing fanatic. He learned to build engines
and adjust a cars suspension and engine for maximum handling. This car
spent 18 years in Oregon with the previous owner, and although it was never
raced on a track, it was built for speed and handling.
The current owner is also a loving car enthusiast. The engine, suspension
and paint were all nice when the current owner bought the car in 2011, but
even so he continued to make improvements on the car. The stainless steel
Exhaust is one of the more notable
additions the car received since it found a new home here in Minnesota.
This '67 Volvo is the sixth car I've listed for the current seller. So
don't let the short ownership make you think this car is not loved and
appreciated like crazy. The seller is aiming toward owning 100 cars during
his lifetime, and since he doesn't own more than one or two at a time it's
time this Volvo moved on to a new, lucky owner. Even though the car must
move on, the seller mentioned this Volvo is tied for first in the
For the past two decades, this car has been blessed with very caring
owners. As a result this car runs, handles and responds as if it is giving
thanks for all the love and attention it has received. The front and rear
weight distribution is nearly even, the car is light relative to horsepower, and the
suspension has been lowered by about two inches and fitted with new tires
and shocks. So this 1967 Volvo 122S is about as fun to drive as any sports
car out there for sale today.
Take a look at the full specs at the link above as well as two detailed
photo galleries and more video. Give me a call to get your hands on this
fun sports car!
Thanks for watching - enjoy the drive by and test drive video and leave a
nice big thumbs up and a Like on this Volvo 122S.
1953 Packard Saved From the Crusher!
Hi! This time we're going to give this old Packard Clipper a home so it
doesn't get melted down and made into 7 or 8 Yarii. This old girl has seen
way better days, but I wanted one for the CWMC used-car lot to class the
place up a bit. Thanks for joining us as we take a little look around this
straight-8-powered beauty. It's equipped with the Ultramatic transmission,
Packard's own automatic. No power steering in this one, though! This car
was originally a light grey with a black top and grey interior. At some
point it seems like it was repaired after an accident on the left front
corner and repainted this green with a white top.
I'm not sure what to do with this Packard, but I just wanted it anyway.
Maybe we'll try sometime to get it going again? Let us know what you think.
Thanks for watching this stuff; I enjoy sharing these junkyard gems with
you. Please subscribe to the coldwarmotors channel if you like this kind of
Cheers from me and Stella.
Real Drivers: Volvo 122 Amazon
See more at http://hittingredline.com/ .
This was an film that I had meant to do in the fall of 2011, but ran out of
time for and pushed back to spring. Jonathan Bigelow's 1966 Volvo Amazon
has an interesting story that is even more fascinating to hear in full;
between its construction and now, it has crossed a number of borders, first
from Sweden to Norway, and then from Norway to the United States - and all
in one family.
For those of you who are particular, the irritating leaf blower cuts out at
Music in this piece is "Grünes Land VIIb" by Still Playing Guitar, used

The Volvo Amazon is a mid-size car manufactured by Volvo Cars from 1956 to
1970 and introduced in the USA as the 122S at the New York International
Auto Show in April 1959.
The Amazon shared both the wheelbase from its predecessor, the PV, as well
as its tall posture and high H-point seating — while offering three model
configurations: 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan and wagon. In 1959 Volvo
provided front seat belts as standard equipment on all the cars, including
the export models, becoming the world's first manufacturer to take this
step — later becoming the first car featuring three-point seat belts.
When introduced, the car was called the Amason (with an 's'), which derives
from the fierce female warriors of Greek mythology, the Amazons. Kreidler,
German manufacturer of motorcycles had already registered the name, and the
two companies agreed Volvo could only use the name domestically (i.e.,
within Sweden), modifying the spelling to Amazon. Subsequently, Volvo began
its tri-digit nomenclature and the line became known as the 120 Series.
The Amazon was originally manufactured at Volvo's Lundby plant in
Gothenburg and subsequently at the company's Torslandaverken, which began
operating in 1964. By the end of production, 234,653 four-door models,
359,917 two-door models and 73,220 station wagons had been produced, 60% of
them for export — for a total of 667,791 vehicles.
1967 Volvo Amazon 122S Station Wagon B18 Dual Carb Estate Break Test Drive Video Review
67 Volvo Amazon 122S Station Wagon Manual B18 Estate Break Test Drive Video
Review http://www.1OwnerCarGuy.com Here is a very sweet 67 Volvo Amazon
122S Wagon. This car is very nice and runs great. It has the B18 engine and
you can tell that the car was maintained. A lot of the seals have been
redone and it's clean as can be. The car fires right up and just cruises
down the road. The car actually has quite a bit of power and is a blast to
drive. The exterior of this car is very nice. The paint has a nice shine to
it and the body is straight as can be. I like the look of this car it has a
unique look to it and it definitely stands out. Everybody asks you about
this car. It is completely factory. The factory wheels look great and don't
show much road wear. The interior is very nice. The seats show hardly any
wear at all and are in great shape. There is no carpet but it does have the
rubber pieces on the floor still that are in great shape. This car has been
very well cared for over the years and it shows all the way around. Inside
and out this is a very nice car and not something you see everyday. Thank

The station wagon (estate) version was introduced at the 1962 Stockholm
Auto Show, and Volvo manufactured 73,000 examples between 1962 and 1969.
The Amazon estate featured a two-piece tailgate, with the lower section
folding down to provide a load surface and the upper section that hinged
overhead. The vehicle's rear license plate, attached to the lower tailgate,
could fold "up" such that when the tailgate was lowered and the vehicle in
use, the license plate was still visible. This idea was used by the
original 1959 Austin Seven. In recent years a similar arrangement was used
on the tailgate of the Subaru Baja.
The Amazon platform was used as the basis for the P1800 and 1800ES.

Will it Run? Episode 18: 1959 Chevy Biscayne! Part 1 of 3
Welcome back for another episode of our show about salvaging junk and
getting it to run just for the hell of it. This time it's a 1959 Biscayne 4
door sedan. It is in pretty rough shape after sitting around outside since
1971 or so. Pretty much everything is ruined, but I still think it would be
cool to see it moving around under its own steam again.
Join us as we try to make this old Chev go and tidy it up just enough to
look presentable while preserving the "farmyard" character of the car.
